OPPORTUNITIES IN VETERINARY MEDICINE 

If you have an interest in animals and their welfare, an inquiring, 
studious mind and a willingness to work, an almost limitless horizon of 
challenge and service can be yours in veterinary medicine. Professional 
prestige and the deep personal satisfaction of making important contri- 
butions to the health of both animals and man accrue to the Doctor of 
Veterinary Medicine. The need for qualified veterinarians in private 
practice, government and military service, research, education, and in- 
dustry far exceeds the available number. Opportunities for both men and 
women in this profession have never been greater. 

About 60 per cent of our country's 24,000 veterinarians are engaged 
in general and specialized animal health practice. These men and women 
are the front line of defense against diseases which affect farm animals, 
pets, wildlife, and sometimes man. Another large number of veterinarians 
are in government and military service. The United States Department of 
Agriculture requires a full-time staff of nearly 1,500 veterinarians to in- 
spect for wholesomeness and safety the meats and poultry handled by 
federally inspected slaughterhouses and meat processing plants. Others 
are involved with field work in animal disease detection, suppression, and 
eradication. By inspecting animals and animal products before, during, 
and after processing, veterinarians detect and eliminate unsafe food prod- 
ucts. Additional USDA service opportunities include stockyards super- 
vision; enforcement of transport, import, and quarantine regulations; 
research on animal health problems; and development, licensing, and 
supervision of the manufacture of serums and other biological products for 
animals and human beings. 

Our armed forces require large numbers of veterinarians to inspect 
food products served to military personnel and to assure the general sani- 
tation and cleanliness of military bases. Veterinary officers are assigned 
to research work in such areas as biological warfare, aerospace, nuclear 
medicine, and oceanographic medicine. Veterinarians also serve in the 
I Fnited States Public Health Service and the Food and Drug Administra- 
tion, and with such international agencies as the World Health Organiza- 
tion, the Pan-American Health Organization, and the Peace Corps. 

State and municipal governments employ many veterinarians for dis- 
ea e control and eradication work. These practitioners cooperate with 
federal officials, private practitioners, and public health veterinarians in 
testing and diagnosis, in environmental sanitation of packing houses and 
food establishments, and in the regulatory control oi meat, milk, and 
Othei animal food products. 

Private industry demands increasing numbers <>f veterinary medical 

u ientists. I tiese men and women ate an integral part <>l teams responsible 

10 



for developing, manufacturing, and marketing high-quality drugs and 
diagnostic products. The feed industry and commercial animal feeders 
require larger numbers of veterinarians as the interrelationship of nutri- 
tion and disease becomes better understood. Laboratory animal veteri- 
narians are also in demand. Their special skills are needed to establish 
and maintain the health of experimental animal colonies necessary to 
conduct of research essential to the suppression of both human and animal 
diseases. 

Many new demands are arising for veterinarians in the fields of teach- 
ing and research. Advanced study and specialization in scientific disci- 
plines such as physiology, pathology, and microbiology prepare graduates 
for the vital obligation of educating veterinarians, as well as for research 
to enlarge our understanding of biological processes in normal and dis- 
eased animals, and to improve surgical and therapeutic techniques. More 
veterinarians are also needed to conduct the continuing education pro- 
grams necessary to help practitioners and animal owners keep abreast of 
rapid changes and developments in the animal health field. 

EDUCATION AND TRAINING 

Formal education for a career in veterinary medicine is similar to that 
required for human medicine. A minimum of two years of preveterinary 
college education is required for admission to the four-year professional 
program of the College of Veterinary Medicine. More than 20 per cent 
of the first-year University of Illinois veterinary medical students in 1967 
had earned academic degrees before entering the professional curriculum. 
Preveterinary requirements include a strong background in life and physi- 
cal sciences as well as general education courses. The professional cur- 
riculum largely consists of basic and applied veterinary and biomedical 
sciences. 

Students are graduated from the professional program with the degree 
of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.). To qualify for a license to 
practice, a veterinarian must pass state and national board examinations. 
Some states also require an internship with a recognized practitioner. 

Becoming a veterinarian requires dedication and diligent study. 
Today's veterinarian must meet high standards of ethics and performance, 
and the damands on his time are usually heavy. Yet the challenge and 
rewards are tremendous. An ever-broadening horizon of service and en- 
deavor challenges the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. 

COLLEGE OF VETERINARY MEDICINE 

The College of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Illinois was 
established in 1944. A professional four-year curriculum leading to the 



n 




PUBLIC SERVICE FUNCTIONS OF THE COLLEGE INCLUDE TREATING PETS AND FARM ANIMALS 

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.) degree was initiated in 1948, 
and the first class of the College was graduated in 1952. The College was 
advanced from undergraduate to professional status in 1957. 

Although one of the newer colleges of the University of Illinois, 
Veterinary Medicine is no newcomer from the standpoint of tradition. 
A course in veterinary medical science was taught at the University as 
early as 1870, three years after the institution was chartered as Illinois 
Industrial University. In 1899, a Department of Veterinary Science was 
established in the College of Agriculture. This department was replaced 
by the Division of Pathology and Hygiene in 1917. Two years later, a 
building on south campus was remodeled and designated the Animal 
Pathology Laboratory and Clinic Building. 

In 1927, a part-time program of extension teaching was formally 
organized to emphasize and aid in disease prevention through proper sani- 
tation, herd and flock management, and laboratory aids to diagnosis. The 
first program centered mainly around the prevention and control of in- 

fectious abortion in cattle and swine. Four years later, the Illinois State 

Department of Agriculture began cooperating with the Division ol Animal 
Pathology and Hygiene to improve and expand diagnostic service for the 
entire animal population of the state. Ibis arrangement between the State 



IV 



Department of Agriculture and the College of Veterinary Medicine has 
proven advantageous over the years in suppressing disease. 

In 1940, the Division of Animal Pathology and Hygiene became a 
department in the College of Agriculture. When the College of Veterinary 
Medicine was established in 1945, this department became one of four in 
the College, the other three being Physiology and Pharmacology, Clinical 
Medicine, and Anatomy. In 1966 the Department of Veterinary Anatomy 
became the Department of Biological Structure. 

OBJECTIVES 

The major objective of the College of Veterinary Medicine is to im- 
prove the means of preventing and controlling diseases of all species of 
animals. This includes the zoonoses, which are those diseases common to 
man and others of the animal kingdom. The College's three major func- 
tions — education, research, and public service — are committed to im- 
proving and maintaining the health and welfare of both animals and 
people. 

The educational responsibilities of the College are two-fold, consisting 
of resident instruction and extension or continuing education. The pri- 
mary obligation is resident instruction. Thorough, intensive education of 
superior students through the College's professional and graduate pro- 
grams prepares men and women for practice and research in many phases 
of veterinary medicine. Extension teaching and continuing education in- 
clude meetings, conferences, and special courses held both on campus and 
throughout the state. These programs help practicing veterinarians, as 
well as rural and urban animal owners, keep abreast of new r developments 
in animal medicine, public health, and other dimensions of veterinary 
medicine. 

Public service encompasses the important functions of disease detec- 
tion, diagnosis, and control. Residents of Illinois and neighboring states 
often rely on services provided by the College. Animal patients are treated 
by the Large and Small Animal Clinics on campus and by the ambulatory 
clinic which takes veterinary services to patients throughout the state. The 
College also cooperates with the State Department of Agriculture in oper- 
ating a diagnostic laboratory. The laboratory, located in the Veterinary 
Medicine Building, examines specimens and performs autopsies for veteri- 
narians and animal owners throughout the state. Operation of these 
services provides valuable teaching material and experience for students, as 
well as information on epidemics and problems demanding investigation. 

Individual faculty members serve the public through committee assign- 
ments with state and federal agencies such as the United States Depart- 



13 



ment of Health. Education and Welfare, Food and Drug Administration, 
and National Academy of Science. Many are consulted by physicians and 
scientists on zoonotic diseases. Still others are actively involved in wild- 
life disease control and various public health programs. 

Research toward better means and methods of overcoming the ravages 
of diseases is also a vital College function. College research projects deal 
with many serious communicable diseases including zoonoses such as lep- 
tospirosis. viral encephalitis, rabies, listeriosis, and parainfluenza. Investi- 
gations are also conducted on noninfectious metabolic, nutritional, toxic, 
and hereditary diseases. 

FACILITIES 

The College is located at the University's Urbana campus. The basic 
science unit or Veterinary Medicine Building is on Pennsylvania Avenue 
in the southeastern part of the campus. This modern four-story brick 
building provides offices, laboratories, and classrooms for teaching and re- 
search. A large four-story annex adjoining the main building provides 
facilities for diagnosis and research. 

Veterinary medical students have access to the third largest university 
library in the nation as well as to the veterinary medical and other college 
libraries on campus. The veterinary medical library, located on the second 
floor of the Veterinary Medicine Building, contains well over 15,000

volumes that cover the broad areas of veterinary medicine, biomedicine, 
and related subjects. 

A Large Animal Clinic and Hospital building which can accommodate 
42 patients is located on Maryland Avenue, south of the Veterinary Medi- 
cine Building. The hospital has modern surgery and X-ray facilities, a 
pharmacy, recovery room, decontamination facilities, and feed and equip- 
ment storage rooms. To the west and south are enclosed service and exer- 
cise courts. 

The Small Animal Clinic is in the old Veterinary Medical Hospital 
building on Taft Drive near Sixth Street. Construction of a new two- 
building small animal clinic, hospital, and obstetrics complex began in 
early spring of 1968. Barring unforseen delays, the new facilities should 
be ready for classes by second semester, 1970. These buildings are the first 
of a proposed new eight-building veterinary medicine campus to be lo- 
cated about three-eighths of a mile south of the present Veterinary Medi- 
cine Building. 

A moderate security Veterinary Medical Research Building for investi- 
gations of infectious and non-infectious diseases is located near the Large 
Animal Hospital. A research farm on South Race Street, four miles from 
the Veterinary Medicine Building, is used for important veterinary medi- 
cal and zoonoses research, including projects of the Department of Veteri- 
nary Research of the Agricultural Experiment Station and of the Illinois 
Center for Zoonoses Research. The Center, established in 1960, coordi- 
nates the talents and knowledge of scientists and other specialists repre- 
senting fifteen disciplines from the University and other agencies in basic 
laboratory as well as field investigations of various zoonoses. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

A minimum of sixty semester hours of prescribed and elective preveteri- 
nary medical course work is required for admission to the College. Pre- 
veterinary medical students may register in the College of Agriculture or 
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Equivalent preveterinary course 
work may be taken at other accredited institutions. Preveterinary medical 
training does not automatically guarantee admission to the College. 

Applicants for admission to the College must present not less than sixty 
semester hours of acceptable credit from an approved college or univer- 
sity. Hours earned in military training or physical education are not 
counted in this total. The minimum acceptable grade-point average is 3.5 
(5.0 equals A). The sixty semester hours must include the following: 

Hours 

Chemistry (including organic and quantitative analysis) 16 

Biological Science (biology including botany and general zoology) 8

The foreign language requirement may be fulfilled by: (a) one year of a single foreign 
language in college; (b) three years of a single foreign language in high school; (c) comple- 
tion of the second semester of a foreign language in college; (d) qualifying score on place- 
ment examination. 

" These courses are part of the General Education Sequences required for graduation from 
the University of Illinois. Specific courses which may be counted as General Education 
Sequences are listed in the Undergraduate Study catalog under both the College of Agri- 
culture and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

Enrollment of students in the professional College must be restricted 
because of limited facilities. In selecting students for admission, scholar- 
ship in preveterinary medical subjects and character references are con- 
sidered. General and professional aptitude testing and personal interviews

are also used in the careful evaluation of prospective students. Preference 
is given to residents of Illinois and to Illinois service veterans. 

Additional information on admission requirements may be obtained by 
writing to the Director of Admissions and Records, Administration Build- 
ing. University of Illinois. Urbana, Illinois 61801. 

Applications for admission to the school year which 'begins in Sep- 
tember should be submitted to the Director of Admissions and Records no 
later than February 1. Each new undergraduate student (except foreign 
students who. at the time of application, are residing outside the United 
States approved for admission to the University of Illinois College of 
Veterinary Medicine is required to make an advance deposit of $30 in 
order to hold the admission permit granted him. This deposit is applied 
to the student's tuition and fees in the semester for which he or she is 
admitted. The deposit should not be sent until requested by the University 
after the student has been notified of his acceptance for admission. The 
deposit is nonrefundable except in very special cases. It will be refunded 
at registration to students holding scholarships covering both tuition 
and fees.

Students who do not earn a satisfactory score on the Chemistry Placement Test must take 
Chemistry 100 before enrolling in Chemistry 101. Prerequisite for Chemistry 101 is Mathe- 
matics 111 or 112 (college algebra), or exemption from Mathematics 112 through the Mathe- 

17 



Students are advised to take electives which will complete the General 
Education Sequence requirements in the areas of social sciences and hu- 
manities. A list of approved sequence courses may be found in the Uni- 
versity of Illinois Undergraduate Study catalog under both the College of 
Agriculture and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, or may be ob- 
tained from the administrative office of any Illinois junior college. 

Students who are exempted from mathematics or foreign language will 
need additional General Education Sequence courses or free elective 
courses to bring their total hours to sixty. 

THE PROFESSIONAL CURRICULUM 

The first two years of the four-year professional curriculum are de- 
voted largely to study of basic sciences such as anatomy, biochemistry, 
physiology, microbiology 7 , pathology, parasitology, and pharmacology. Se- 
lected courses in animal, dairy, and poultry sciences are also required. 
These basic studies provide a foundation for the applied work of the final 
two years. 

The third year serves as a transitional stage in education for the pro- 
fessional veterinary medicine student. Courses are designed to form a 
bridge between the basic study of the first two years and the applied sci- 
entific or clinical work of the fourth year. Courses taken during the last 
two years include applied pharmacology, general and special surgery, dis- 
eases of small animals, diseases of large animals, breeding problems and 
obstetrics, public health, and clinical and laboratory practice. A limited 
number of elective courses such as management and diseases of laboratory 
animals may also be taken. 

Fourth-year instruction is primarily in laboratory and clinical practice. 
Here students have ample opportunity to apply knowledge gained in class- 
room and laboratory study to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of 
animal diseases. Courses in radiology, diseases of poultry, infectious dis- 
eases of large animals, food hygiene and public health, jurisprudence, busi- 
ness methods and ethics, together with clinical pathology conferences and 
seminars, complete the formal education. 

Third- and fourth-year classes are divided into groups with rotating 
assignments in the various clinical services. The fourth-year class spends 

matics Placement Test. Students who do not satisfy both of these requirements must delay 
Chemistry 101 until the second semester, then attend a summer session in order to complete 
all preveterinary requirements in two years. 

Students who have at least a half unit of high school trigonometry are not required to 
take trigonometry. Such students should select a three- or four-hour course from the General 
Education Sequence group for their first semester.

where students participate in fall roundup and gain valuable experience 
in handling, examining, and treating range cattle. During the second 
semester, the upper classes take field trips to selected packing, food, and 
dairy products processing plants in Chicago and other areas. They also 
have opportunities to observe and take part in activities of public health 
agencies, biological and pharmaceutical industries, zoological gardens, and 
animal colonies, as well as industrial, university, and other research 
programs.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

Students who have fulfilled their general science requirements and 
: .ill courses of the lust two years oi the veterinary medical curricu- 
lum, and who have compiled a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or 



20 



bettor in these courses, an- eligible for the degree of Bachelor of Science 
in Veterinary Medicine. 

Students who have passed all courses in the four-year veterinary medi- 
cal curriculum and who have an average of 3.0 or better in these courses 
arc eligible for the degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

Grade designations are A, B, C, D, and E. D is the lowest passing 
grade. E is failure. Individual credit points are computed as follows: 
A = 5 points; B = 4;C = 3;D = 2; and E = 1. Grade-point averages 
are computed by multiplying credit hours for each course by the credit 
points of the letter grade, then adding the total number of credit points 
and dividing by the number of credit hours.

LONG-TERM LOANS 

A number of loan funds have been established to aid University stu- 
dents. These funds are available to worthy students in the College of 
Veterinary Medicine and to preveterinary medical students enrolled in the 
College of Agriculture or the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Loans 
are not ordinarily made to students during their first year at the Uni- 
versity. Unless otherwise stipulated in the deed of gift, privately endowed 
long-term loans available through the University are subject to the same 
terms of administration as University Long-Term Loans. 

University Long-Term Loans. A maximum of $2,500 may be loaned 
to a student during the period he attends the University. Arrangements 
may be made to repay over a four-year period by installments beginning 
four months after the student leaves school or otherwise ceases to be 
enrolled on a full-time basis. No interest is charged until repayment 
begins. The rate thereafter is 3 per cent to maturity and 6 per cent after 
the four-year repayment period expires. Assurance of security by a quali- 
fied endorser or by collateral satisfactory to the Business Office is required 
for all long-term loans unless otherwise provided in the deed of gift or 
waived in meritorious cases by the Dean of Students or the Dean of 
Women and Business Office. 

Health Professions Student Loan Fund. This United States Public 
Health Service fund was established by Congress to help worthy students 
meet normal expenses necessary to pursue full-time study in one of the 
health professions. Applicants must be students in good standing who are 
taking a full course load leading to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine de- 
gree. Amount loaned varies according to need. The maximum is $2,000 
for a nine-month academic year, or $2,666 for a student who must pursue 
his course of study for a full twelve months. Students are allowed up to 
three years following termination of full-time status to begin repayment, 
and after that, up to ten years to complete repayment. No interest is 
charged while the borrower is a student or during the three-year grace 
period. Once repayment begins, loans bear a low interest based on the 
"going federal rate" at the time the loan was made. 

United Student Aid Funds Program. Through this program, the Uni- 
versity cooperates with banks throughout the nation to make loans avail- 
able to students. Undergraduates may borrow up to $1,000 a year; gradu- 
ates up to $1,500 a year. A student may borrow a maximum of $7,500 for 
his undergraduate and graduate program. Repayment begins five months 
after full-time study stops, and must be completed within four years. Ap- 
plications for these loans are accepted throughout the school year. They 
are initiated and processed in the Student Loan Office, then forwarded to 



23 



the student's or his parents' bank. Applicants must have completed one 
year of college or university work. 

Higher Education Assistance Corporation Loans. Several states have 
Higher Education Assistance agencies from which students may borrow 
money through arrangements similar to those of the Illinois Guaranteed 
Loan Program. An interested student may obtain information from his 
state Superintendent of Public Instruction or from a national or state 
bank in his home locality. 

Illinois Guaranteed Loan Program. The Illinois General Assembly has 
authorized a program to guarantee student loans made by commercial 
lenders to legal residents of the State of Illinois. There is no age restric- 
tion. A minor is eligible to enter into a loan contract and assume the re- 
sponsibility for his own indebtedness. Students may borrow only once 

APPLIED PRACTICES SUCH AS SURGERY ARE TAUGHT IN THE THIRD AND FOURTH YEARS 




24 



during an academic year. Repayment begins nine months after the bor- 
rower ceases full-time study. Eligible freshmen may borrow from $300 to 
$1,000: students of sophomore or higher standing may borrow up to 
$1,500. Further information may be obtained from the Illinois State 
Scholarship Commission, Box 33, Deerfield, Illinois 60015. 

Knights Templar Educational Loan. The amount is $1,200 for the 
last year of the curriculum, or $750 for each of the last two years. The 
maximum to any one student will not exceed $1,500. Interest of 4 per 
cent accrues from the date of loan, although repayment need not begin 
until after graduation. While loans may be made to students attending 
any accredited institution, an applicant must apply in his home state. Fur- 
ther information may be obtained from any Commandary of Knights 
Templar. 

Xational Association of Federal Veterinarians Loan Fund. This fund 
was established May 13, 1964, for long-term loans to students in the Col- 
lege of Veterinary Medicine. Amount loaned varies with individual 
circumstances. 

The Merritt Credit Bureau Foundation Loan. Maximum amount is 
$600 for any academic year. Note matures after graduation, and a repay- 
ment schedule can be arranged. Interest is 3 per cent a year and begins 
to accrue from the date full-time student status ceases. 

Pickett and Hatcher Educational Fund. Information may be obtained 
by writing the home office: Pickett and Hatcher Educational Fund, P.O. 
Box 1238, Columbus, Georgia 31902. 

Sandemac Kennel Club Veterinary Student Loan Fund. A fund estab- 
lished February 25, 1966, by the Sandemac Kennel Club, Inc. of Decatur 
for loans to third- and fourth-year students in the College of Veterinary 
Medicine. Amount which may be borrowed depends on funds available 
at the time of loan. 

United Student Aid Funds Incorporated. A private, non-profit service 
corporation which endorses low-cost, long-term loans made by local banks 
to needy college students. Loans are made to deserving students regardless 
of curriculum, but a prospective borrower must have completed his fresh- 
man year. The maximum loaned is $1,000 a year or a total of $3,000 for 
a student's undergraduate and graduate education. Repayments are 
spread over a thirty-six-month period beginning the fifth month after 
graduation. Students leaving school prior to graduation must begin re- 
payments within thirty days but may take up to three years to repay. Loans 
bear no more than 6 per cent simple interest. Special funds from a bequest 
by Dr. Fred H. Burt of Chenoa, Illinois, have been deposited with USA 
Funds as security for loans to veterinary medical students.

students meet educational expenses in emergencies. Normally $100 is the 
maximum loaned, although in exceptional cases up to $250 may be bor- 
rowed. Funds are made available immediately. Generally, the loans must 
be repaid within thirty to sixty days, or by the end of the semester, which- 
ever comes first. Longer repayment periods can be arranged in special 
cases, however. Emergency loans are interest free if repaid by the due 
date. Interest of 6 per cent a year is charged on overdue loans.

lege offers programs of graduate study leading to the Master of Science 
and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Students may specialize in one of 
several disciplines including biological structure (anatomy), microbiology, 
parasitology, pathology, pharmacology, and physiology. Thesis research is 
carried out in basic and applied fields. The major objective of graduate 
study is to develop independent scholarship, originality, and competence 
in research in various fields of veterinary medical science.

STUDENT HEALTH SERVICE 

The Health Service of the University provides routine clinical, labora- 
tory, and X-ray services for all students. Consultation is available on 
personal matters of a medical nature and on dental and psychiatric 
problems. 

In addition, students are eligible for admission and may receive services 
as outpatients at McKinley Hospital, which operates on the campus under 
the Health Service. Hospitalization for students is covered by a student 
insurance program. A Health Service physician is in residence at the 
hospital after the regular hours of the Health Center. He provides emer- 
gency service and admits patients to the hospital if they have not been 
seen by a private physician prior to admission. 

STUDENT EMPLOYMENT 

Some students work part-time while attending school. Because of the 
large number of required classroom hours for their program, however, 
veterinary medical students should try to keep additional work to a mini- 
mum. A recent survey conducted by the College showed most of our 
students think 10 hours a week is as much time as they can spend at part- 
time work and still attain their own personal and scholastic goals. 

Veterinary medical students are employed in the College's research 
projects as technicians, assistants, and animal caretakers, and in other 
University departments as laboratory assistants. Such work offers both 
income and valuable experience to the prospective veterinarian. Other 
students find employment for meals or for both room and meals. The 
Student Employment Office, a division of the Dean of Students' Office, 
provides information and assistance to students who seek part-time work. 

LIVING ARRANGEMENTS 

The Housing Division offers current information on all types of ac- 
commodations for undergraduate, graduate, married, and single students. 
It issues application forms for space in University-operated residence 
halls, provides lists of rooms available in other approved residences, and 
supervises standards of safety, health, comfort, and study conditions in 
housing units. 

Students are asked to contact the Housing Division by mail or in 
person immediately after applying for admission to the University. They 
will then receive copies of the Handbook of Student Housing, lists of 
current vacancies, area maps, etc., and will be given definite instructions 
on how to apply for space in the particular type of unit in which they are 
interested and which will best serve their individual needs.

ORGANIZATIONS 

STUDENT CHAPTER OF THE AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION 

A center of student activities in the College of Veterinary Medicine 
is the student chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association. 
Similar organizations are found at all recognized veterinary medical 
schools and colleges in the United States and Canada. 

Activities of the student chapter at Illinois include social gatherings, 
sponsorship of the Preveterinary Medical Student Club, the annual wel- 
come to first-year students, alumni dance, student-staff spring picnic, 
annual Outstanding Teacher Award, and spring dinner-dance. One of 
the group's major projects is the popular Veterinary Medicine Open 
House held in the spring. The chapter's semimonthly programs feature 
guest speakers on many phases of veterinary medicine and other subjects. 
The chapter also sponsors intramural athletic teams including basketball, 
football, Softball, and bowling. 

ILLINOIS VETERINARIAN 

The Illinois Veterinarian, the official publication of the University of 
Illinois Student Chapter of the AVMA, is published quarterly by a staff 

OPEN HOUSE GIVES STUDENTS A CHANCE TO TELL OTHERS ABOUT VETERINARY MEDICINE

of veterinary medical students. Through this major activity, many stu- 
dents gain valuable experience in writing and in business procedures. The 
magazine has a circulation of well over 2,000. Although nearly three- 
fourths of its subscribers live within the boundaries of Illinois, copies are 
sent to veterinary medical libraries throughout the world. 

OMEGA TAU SIGMA 

The National Fraternity established Theta Chapter on the campus in 
1956. The purpose of this organization is to develop broadly educated, 
public spirited veterinarians. 

Membership is open to all students of the College. The organization 
provides effective relationships outside the classroom, including group 
participation in educational and social gatherings. 

PHI ZETA 

Phi Zeta, the national honor society of veterinary medicine, was 
founded in 1925 for the purpose of recognizing and promoting high ethical 
standards and excellence in scholarship and research in all areas of ani- 
mal welfare. Mu Chapter at the University of Illinois was established 
in 1953. 

Membership is open to third-year veterinary medical students who 
rank in the upper 10 per cent of their class scholastically, and to fourth- 
year students in the upper 25 per cent of their class. Graduate students 
and College faculty members of outstanding ability who hold the D.V.M. 
degree also may be invited to join. Honorary membership may be granted 
to a veterinarian who has had his D.V.M. degree at least five years and has 
rendered notable service to the profession, or to a nonveterinarian who 
has made distinguished contributions to animal welfare. 

ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 

Graduates of the College have formed the University of Illinois Veteri- 
nary Medical Alumni Association. The association is designed to create 
broader professional acquaintance among its members, to afford oppor- 
tunity for increasing professional knowledge, to promote mutually bene- 
ficial contact between the alumni and the College, and to counsel with 
students and faculty. Each Homecoming the association holds its annual 
business luncheon and an evening dinner-dance which features a special 
guest speaker and recognition of the alumni class marking the tenth anni- 
versary of its graduation. Members of the alumni association also actively 
support a number of faculty and student projects with both time and 
funds.
